Don Bosco Volley Ball Tournament and Dance Competition
Don Bosco is God’s gift to the world, especially the poor. In fact the face of Don Bosco was fashioned by God to instill confidence, especially in the young. Don Bosco desired to permeate each of his settings with a positive ambience of serene friendship, where every young person would feel at ease. In order to realize this communion and friendship Don Bosco, Hospet invited various groups, associations, schools, colleges and institutions of Hospet Taluk to a Volleyball Tournament and a Dance competition. Fr. Henry Galbaw and his team organized the Volley ball tournament on 12th February and gave away the Don Bosco Cup and cash award for the winners. On 13th February, 16 groups grabbed the opportunity to participate in the Dance competition. This was organized by Fr. Tony Varghese and his team. A good number of people were happy to witness and encourage this event. Don Bosco, Hospet is grateful to the people who sponsored cash award and Trophy for the youngsters who took part in the programme.
Entertainment Programme for SHG women
